Craftsman Snow Thrower Model 536.881113 Speed Control Doesn't Work

Last weekend I bought a used Craftsman Snow Thrower Model 536.881113. I didn't realize how poorly maintained it was till I got it home. Out of 6 forward speeds only the fastest one works. None of the two reverse speeds work. I took off the bottom plate and found that the hex shaft (p/n 1501100) was badly rusted and pitted. How does the shift speeds work? Does the friction disc wheel (p/n 1501435) slide on the hex shaft to change speeds? If so, the shaft is so badly rusted and pitted that I assume it can't slide and that's why the only speed I have is #6, the fastest speed. Before I start buying parts, I thought it best to check with you folks for some works of wisdom. Thanks for your help.
